Atelier Rorona is an RPG that does not necessarily follow the footsteps of its most famous peers but it's certainly not forced to in order to deliver a fun, entertaining and enjoyable experience. Thanks to its emphasis on a system that allows the creation and concoction of new items, this game demonstrates it's not necessary to have an epic and overwhelming story to deliver an interesting and compelling RPG.

Overall, Atelier Rorona: The Alchemist of Arland DX is a game intended for players who like to create things and deal with people. Although there are battles, they are weak and somewhat tedious, making it even clearer that the title's focus is on taking care of the workshop, rather than breaking out generic maps in search of colossal monsters.

If you're a JRPG fan who has never played Atelier Rorona or only played the original version then The Alchemist of Arland DX is definitely worth a purchase, especially if you enjoy lighthearted whimsical tales set in delightful worlds.
